CONVERGE, the title of Heribert Friedl's latest composition serves perfectly to underline the artist's conceptual approach to music. Distinct, fragile sounds, at times crumbling, at times rustling and droning, all move towards the same point within an organic micro-audio space. Friedl's understanding of sculpturing material in space is strongly reflected in his treatment of sounds. The quality of each sound, like the delicate sound of metal grinding or the subtle rustling of leafs, is shaped with minutious detail and put to the core. In line with his earlier work, CONVERGE reflects a sense of nostalgia and the artists's strong refusal to restrict his sounds to merely technical aspects. CONVERGE sounds like someone on a long, unfolding journey, pushing through constantly altering physical space, to finally arrive at a certain point.
